This minitrack serves as a forum for the presentation and discussion of new and innovative approaches of business models beyond e-commerce for coping with the challenges of the digital economy. We consider an economy based on the digitization of information and the respective information and communication infrastructure as digital economy. This new type of economy implies not only technological, but also and especially structural and process-related challenges and potential. The way in which economic value is created will change fundamentally in the digital economy and thus transform the structure of economies and societies.

This evolution will radically alter processes and structures within and between industries leading to the digital economy. All of these developments characterize the emerging digital economy and cause new challenges businesses have to cope with. This clearly will have a major impact on how business models have to be designed. Therefore this minitrack addresses all topics concerned with the analysis, design, development, implementation, and control of future business models for the creation of economic value in the digital economy from a communication, organizational, business, economic, and managerial perspective applying a theoretical, conceptual, or practical approach.

This mini-track aims to look at how to co-create and capture business value from new concepts/technologies both at the firm and SC levels.The preoccupation with supply chain management (SCM) has been present over the last few decades. Early studies pointed to the need to increase the level of integration of IT-enabled for competitive advantage. The advent of new concepts/technologies should accelerate this trend by allowing greater visibility of products and services to SC members –, and in parallel offer more opportunities for quick and efficient SC activities. SC members should therefore face greater strain when managing their own activities as well as integrating of upstream and downstream core business processes and inter- and intra-organizational information systems. In this context, collaboration between the SC stakeholders to co-create and capture value from ITs and related concepts for their economic growth sustainability becomes not only a prerequisite, but also a major challenge.
